Pay What You Can Options
Introducing Pay What You Can options! If the $80 tuition is not within your budget, please consider one of our Pay What You Can options ($60 and $40 for this program). We are also offering financial assistance for even lower tuition rates (see below). Our ability to offer this class with affordable options is contingent on those with the ability to pay full tuition choosing that option. If we do not have enough full priced tuition students, this may result in cancelling the program.
